Hence COVID-19 had an adverse impact in the beginning but as the situation worldwide normalized, the hormonal contraceptive market started to pace up.
In addition, increasing focus on family planning, favorable regulations by the government, and advancements in hormonal contraception are actively affecting the growth of the studied market.

Such approvals are projected to augment the market growth.
Therefore, owing to the aforementioned factors the studied market is anticipated to witness growth over the analysis period. However, the availability of alternative contraceptive methods and health risks associated with hormonal contraception are likely to impede market growth.
